Most striking feature:

This is heaven! As you may have noticed on Instagram and Facebook I was in one of earth’s most precious places called Papaya Playa Project. A fairly new hotel in Tulum which started as a pop up hotel initiated by designhotels.com. Now they are here to stay and welcome guests from all over the world who seek tranquility, nature and inspiration. The hotel consists of cabanas: simple ones with a shared bathroom, cabanas with their own bathroom and a sea view and luxurious cottages. We stayed in Read more…

I’M GOING TO MEXICO, ANY TIPS?

February 7th, 2014

imgoingtomexico

And after the winter in New York, I’m going to the white sandy beaches of Tulum. And in particular to Papaya Playa Project! A hotel I want to visit for ages already – since they opened as a pop up hotel by designhotels.com.  And ofcourse I’m bringing my telephone – no we’re not going on a digital detox holiday – so be prepared for an overload of beach, sea and sun pictures. Just to boost your Vitamin D levels and to inspire you to go there yourself one day!

Join me on Instagram to travel with me to Tulum.

And ofcourse I love to hear about your recommendations. What can’t I miss in that area? Let me know!

TRIED & TESTED: COQUI COQUI TULUM

February 12th, 2012

Most striking feature:

This is probably one of the most romantic hotels I’ve ever seen. Definitely honeymoon material. When we entered Coqui Coqui we went looking for someone who worked there but we couldn’t find someone. I guess she was outside arranging something. So in our search we saw the most romantic room of the house and Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: AZULIK MEXICO

April 27th, 2011

Most striking feature:

This is a true honeymoon resort. You won’t find much on the resort except for a couple of villas. Made out of wood. A simple terrace. An outside tub made of wood. A stunning view over the ocean. And a relaxing loungebed/hammock on the terrace. It’s just you and your lover. And that’s how we like it!

From 180 euro per night. Check out: www.azulik.com

TRIED & TESTED: BE TULUM

November 18th, 2010

Most striking feature:

Can we change that question in: ‘where do you want to go on a lovers trip?’ I’ve to admit that this is the most romantic spot I’ve seen during my trip to Mexico in March. Tulum consists of a strip of hotels – all directly on the beach. The more you drive to the south, the more beautiful the hotels (and the beach looks more unspoiled and the water even more clear). I didn’t stay at Be Tulum (I visited Mexico with two girls and this is more a place to go with your boyfriend), but we had dinner in their lovely restaurant. The service is superb – and the strawberry dessert we tried was delicious. The rooms were pretty, spacious and all included a plunge pool.

TRIED & TESTED: PLAYA AZUL TULUM

August 5th, 2010

Most striking feature:

The rooms. They’re wonderful. That’s because of the tadelakt on the walls and floor and the huge drawing on the wall. You have a little terrace for yourself (including a hammock ofcourse). The bathroom is open. And that can be a problem (especially if you’re travelling with a photographer and stylist like I did) because you want some privacy if you really need to go to the toilet. But that’s a common thing in the Riviera Maya. One tiny bit of negativity: the restaurant is awful. You will wait hours for the food to come and then it’s raw or cold. So prepare yourself and go somewhere else.

From 85 euro a night. Check out: www.playaazultulum.com
